The track was thoroughly pre-produced, and was then recorded at different studios over the course of several weeks, starting with the drum parts, then bass and guitar, and finally vocals.
The song references several strip clubs, including The Tropicana, The Body Shop, Seventh Veil (all located on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles), the Marble Arch (Vancouver, BC), The Dollhouse (Ft. Lauderdale), the famous Crazy Horse in Paris, and Tattletales in Atlanta, GA.

Filmed on the night of April 13, 1987, Mötley Crüe shot their video for "Girls, Girls, Girls" with director Wayne Isham. With a strip club theme planned for the video, they originally wanted to use The Body Shop, but since that venue is all-nude and doesn’t serve alcohol, they end up shooting it at The Seventh Veil on the Sunset Strip. By the time they finished at the club, none of the band members were functioning properly. They left the club on their motorcycles to go to Wayne’s studio nearby to film inserts, stopping off at a Mexican restaurant for shooters and taquitos on the way.
